Big Heavy knife but dulls and chips easily.
I bought this knife believing it would a heavy beast of a machete. It definitely was, it looks mean but is pretty impractical compared to some of the other products out there. Here is why; it is slow and hard to swing (and I am a pretty strong person) because of the weight, the handle was awful and creates blisters quickly, so I had to make my own wooden one over top. The first time I really tested it, it failed. I had a huge chip in the blade and the tip of it was bent out of shape and very dull I will need a grinder to repair it now. This should not happen to a knife this thick. To me, it is too heavy for its own good.
